Obituary

Nick was born on December 30, 1934, in Regina, SK. He grew up on the Paul Sand farm in the Wilmont area. At a young age, Nick helped out on the family farm and had a love of animals, especially horses. He went on to work at various construction jobs, working for Ed Michel’s Road Construction and then started with the R.M. of Humboldt in 1961. On November 10, 1958, Nick married Marina Weiman in Bruno, SK. They moved to Bruno in 1959. Their daughter Sharon was born there on January 29, 1960. Shortly after, they moved to Keller School and, in 1964, they moved to Fulda where Nick continued in the construction industry with the R.M. of Humboldt. Their son Terry was born on October 21, 1965, and son Jeff was born on January 31, 1974. In 1986, the Sand family moved to Humboldt, and Nick commuted to Fulda to work until his retirement in 1995. Throughout his life, Nick pursued many hobbies and interests, including fishing, hunting, gardening, dancing, watching baseball, playing cards, telling jokes, and socializing. More than anything, he loved spending time with his family.
